Hi List,

I installed Samba 3.0.0beta3 on RH 8.
I'm trying to make a shared directory so I can access from M$ machines using 
NT users ( from my PDC ).
I got to join the Domain and I can see the users from my domain (in the 
Linux), I can even login as one...
I used the RTFM "Samba-HOWTO-Collection" to do this...
But I can't open the shared directory, not from any M$ client (or the PDC) 
or the Linux it self (  mount -t smbfs -o username=SRVRS+test%123456  
//pstsrv/test /mnt/test)

winbindd is running ( I try whit "-B" and whitout it)...
also nmdb & smbd running...
every time I try to connect to the share I see in the log this:
  make_server_info_info3: pdb_init_sam failed!

google finds 7 issues like this, nun of them are helpful.

My testparm is:
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[homes]"
Processing section "[printers]"
Processing section "[SHR]"
Processing section "[test]"
Loaded services file OK.
'winbind separator = +' might cause problems with group membership.

I can ping PDCSRV and WINSSRV from Linux by name, I can get the user list 
from the domain controller, I have the right permeation on the dir ( 
drwxrwxrwx    2 SRVRS+GiliL SRVRS+IT     4096 Jan  2 11:14 test )...

PS: if I try to run smbmount whit "debug level 10" I get in this:

21055: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
SMB connection failed

At this point any help/good idea can help :-)
